First consultation meeting Tuesday 13th Nov 2pm - 4pm
at West Greenwich Community Centre, 141 Greenwich High Street (near Greenwich railway station).
Four members of Lewisham People Before Profit were there to confront hatchet man Matthew Kershaw. We challenged him on PFI and the 50 or so members of the public were all sceptical of his reasoning.!
Public meeting last Thursday, 8th November
at the Lessoff Auditorium, Lewisham Hospital, 6pm. The meeting venue was full so two overflow venues were arranged. Around 700 people attended in total and heard Louise Irvine, a local GP and Keep Our NHS Public activist and Eileen Smith from Ealing's Save Our Local Hospitals. Along with Mike Davey of Lewisham Unison they explained the situation and called for maximum turnout on the demonstration on 24th November. Mayor Steve Bullock and MP Heidi Alexander also spoke. Steve Bullock refused to commit Lewisham Council resources to informing all residents about the campaign - so we'll have to do it ourselves!
